  1. turbo smoke from valve cover?

    9000 Workshop
    i have a 94 9000 cse and it has a valve cover leak. when i make boost upon acceleration it smokes from the exhaust. this happens when i start the car too. could the oil be leaking into the exhaust manifold and be causing this smoke? i don't really wanna spend $500 on a new turbo. thanks.

    9000 Workshop

The guy that sold it to me was very honest and told me that it would be a project (which i wanted) and said the turbo seemed it was failing, it had a coolant leak, and it smoked on startup.

    It pains me to have to post a negative comment as my first post to this forum, but it seems like I'm not the only one :roll: SO, outside of having EVERY other common issue that 2003 Saab 9-3 2.0t owners have, I have one that is not so common - or at least not one that I have found on this...
  6. 2001 Saab 9-5 v6 Turbo smoking from the engine

    9-5 Workshop
    My 01 Saab 9-5 is smoking from the engine after being driven on the highway for 60 miles. There was smoke coming from behind the engine and it smelled like rubber was being burned.
